HTC Nexus M1 'Marlin' Surfaces On Geekbench Teasing Specs And Hardware Details!


Following the announcement of Android Nougat name, rumor mills have churned a slew of speculations around the new Nexus device besides teasing fairly extensive specs details.

And those unsure about the Nexus M1, a.k.a. 'HTC Marlin' ability to deliver flagship performance, Phone Arena spotted a benchmark that is nothing short of reassuring.

If rumors surrounding this year's two new HTC-made Nexus models are anything to go by, the company will finish three Nexus phones in 2016, good enough to match standards of LG right at the top. However, that does not include the HTC Nexus S1 that feature a 5-inch display, as well as the HTC Nexus M1 that come with a 5.5-inch screen.

Amidst speculated specs for the HTC Nexus M1 surfacing online from China's Weibo micro-blogging site, more details have been leaked by virtue of the phone's visit to the Geekbench benchmark site.

The listing divulges a slew of other predictable details:

In addition to the latest speculation, the Nexus M1 will reportedly run the recently-announced Android Nougat 7.0.1. It will come with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display coupled with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Under the hood, the Nexus M1 will be powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU.

The device will boast a 12-megapixel rear camera and an impressive 8-megapixel front shooter for the selfie addicts and for those who want to stay connected with friends and family via video chats.

A fingerprint scanner should adorn the back of the device, which will pack 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB/128 GB of native memory.

If rumors proved to be true, two speaker grilles will be on the bottom of the purported handset, besides a Type-C port.

A phone cataloged as the 'google marlin' was recently put to the test on Geekbench, racking up a single score of 2084 and a multi-core result of 4969, Tech Radar reported.

That's well ahead of the 4417 score obtained by the iPhone 6S and extremely close to the 4962 multi-core score of the HTC 10, and both these devices are really fast, so if the listing is anything to go by, fans can expect an impressive performance from the upcoming Nexus.

That said, this is not a score that's never been achieved before or surpassed, for that matter.

The LG G5 achieved a mammoth 5386, the Snapdragon 820 version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 outperformed even that with an impressive 5398, but the Exynos-driven Galaxy S7 takes the top spot at 6542.

Both the HTC Marlin and HTC Sailfish are slate to make an appearance sometime in September, until then fans are recommended to take these speculations with a grain of salt.
